Using A Wall Sconce Next To Your Vanity Mirror. A wall sconce for the bathroom, or more traditionally a pair of them, might be based on the styles of the bathroom mirror and vanity. On the other hand, the styles may be so different that the sight of a contemporary pair of wall sconces beside a Victorian vanity and mirror delivers a little pop of surprise and delight. Such a set up has to be done with care, and the wall sconce has to complement something else in the room, perhaps a modern wet room with chrome fixtures, or a ceramic tile floor with an Art Deco pattern. There are ways to make even the most unlikely elements in a bathroom work in harmony.
Knowing the fact that some bathroom wall sconces are reversible, you will be able to turn them upside down should their light annoy your or if you need a strong light focused on a particular surface. You will get quite a strong illumination if you focus both light fixtures on one tight spot.
These lighting fixtures are usually wall mounted just about the midpoint of a wall. You can go higher or lower, but remember that a poorly placed wall sconce is glaringly noticeable and may not achieve the desired lighting effect. You want a light that will be soft, so place it at a level that won`t glare in your eyes.
It is important to place the sconce about 60 inches from the ground and if you install more than one, they should be at least 6 feet apart from each for best results and most safety at home. Sconces have a great design and they are available in a lot of different styles that can make them decorative items on their own. If you want to accentuate a corner of your room, you can easily place corner sconces to give accent to that gorgeous and antique piece of furniture. You can also highlight with them picture frames and small decorative statues.
